    Flatulent Robot is Britains top toy

    Hugh?? is this true?

    A robot which farts and burps has been named Britain's best toy of 2004.

    Robosapien, designed by former Nasa scientist Mark Tilden, was chosen over 130 other toys.

    Mr Tilden drew on his experience as a robotics physicist to design a robot for the mass market, reports the Independent.

    The 79.99 robot, which also wolf whistles and grunts like a caveman, is expected to be a big hit at Christmas.

    Children from 12 families from across the country spent three months testing the robot along with board games, puzzles and electronic toys.
